Upper West Side

Quiet Good transportation Fun nightlife Great food LGBT-popular

Upper West Side residents can’t imagine living anywhere else.

The buildings are beautiful and, with a few exceptions, tend not to tower over the blocks. The pace of life is a bit slower than in other areas of NYC. For anyone that has lived in or knows Boston, the neighborhood is the closest thing to Boston living that New York has.

Descriptions of 251 W 71st St

If you consider yourself a chef at heart, groceries in the neighborhood include Trader Joe's, Fairway, and Citarella, while Whole Foods Market is located a mere 2 stops down on the 1/2/3 train. Should you decide to get out of your neighborhood, hop that same EXPRESS train at the 72nd street station, and GET ANYWHERE WITHIN MINUTES. As a resident of the Upper West Side, I am an expert on the area, from where to eat, to where to walk your dog. This PRE WAR building, built in 1926, stands 22 stories, and includes 3 elevators, and a 24/Hour doorman. No more hauling your LAUNDRY because there is a facility ON SITE. Eliza Gale (Sep 2014)
Within the area are Central Park, Riverside park, Museum of Natural History, fine restaurants, trendy bars, and specialty stores. Transportation is very good, where the subway station is only a few blocks away. Truly elegant and absolutely unique historic 1920's low rise, rental building. From Foyer Two Story South Facing Living Room Is Straight Ahead. Sasy Elya (Aug 2012)
Exceptional location, near 123 trains, Park, Fine Dining, even a local Trader Joes. Peter McKenna (Oct 2012)
